How to install DirectX 9
DirectX Install
Istaria uses DirectX 9. While newer versions of Windows have built in compatibility for DirectX 9, Istaria requires a real install (instead of compatibility). Please visit Microsoft and download the June 2010 version of DirectX 9

Alternatively, you can download directly from the patch server.
